Linkin Park Set to Debut New Song in "8-Bit Rebellion" iPhone Game

January 7, 2010 12:00 AM ET

Linkin Park will join the ever-growing arsenal of rockers with their own iPhone apps when the Minutes to Midnight band unleash their new touch game Linkin Park: 8-Bit Rebellion later this month, Mike Shinoda's blog revealed. According to Shinoda, the premise is that the gamer has "been chosen by the rebellion to solve a mystery. Items have been stolen from the six leaders of the rebellion. Collecting these items is the rebellion's only hope to thwarting the plans of the evil PixxelKorp."

Doesn't sound overly complex, but the real prize awaits the player at the end of 8-Bit Rebellion: Shinoda says a brand new Linkin Park song will greet fans upon completion. As Rolling Stone previously reported, the "Breaking the Habit" gang has been working on their "genre-busting" new LP for some time now, with one new track called "New Divide" appearing in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
